Oshkosh introduces M-ATV family of vehicles
Oshkosh Defense has expanded its Mine-Resistant, Ambush Protected (MRAP) All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) into a family of vehicles designed to meet a wider range of mission requirements, with a particular focus on the needs of armed forces in the Middle East and North Africa.
The company has developed the family with a wider range of protection, performance, payload and transportability requirements for peacekeeping, internal security, border security, special forces, counterinsurgency and conventional military operations.
The new M-ATV variants include two multi-mission models: the M-ATV Standard and M-ATV Extended, each with multiple variants.
The M-ATV Standard has been developed to provide response and support capabilities for a range of offensive and defensive missions in off-road environments. Variants include the M-ATV Standard Base (SXB), M-ATV Standard Upgrade (SXU), and M-ATV Standard Special Forces (SXF) vehicles.
The M-ATV Extended is designed to provide increased capacity for additional troops and equipment to support a wider assortment of mission profiles, such as mounted infantry support, explosive ordnance support and command-and-control. Variants of this model include the M-ATV Extended Intervention (EXI), M-ATV Extended Engineer (EXE), and M-ATV Extended Command (EXC) vehicles.
John Urias, president, Oshkosh Defense, said: ‘The Oshkosh M-ATV already stands alone as the battle-tested, highly mobile MRAP of choice for a full range of missions. Our new M-ATV variants expand on this life-saving platform to address a more diverse mix of mission profiles and specialised functionality, threat levels and cost targets, so troops get the vehicle that’s right for their specific needs.’
All M-ATVs retain the off-road performance of the original, and feature common components, such as the Oshkosh TAK-4 independent suspension system.
